Timothy E. Knight, MD
“I enjoy the problem solving process in dermatology. After all these years, I still view each person individually and each condition as a fascinating mystery for me to solve. However, what is not a mystery to me is that skin cancer can be prevented in many cases. I remain committed to educating others about methods to help evade skin cancer."
“I am a lifelong learner, and am pleased to offer services that keep pace with our times. For example, our tattoo removal service has allowed me to help people start their education, employment, or life in a better place. Seeing a patient’s gratitude after their service is very rewarding for me.”
